Unusual city. Growing up around the huge military arsenal, which has dictated the urban layout, still draws much of its wealth from the commercial maritime industry. Although almost completely devoid of ancient monuments, La Spezia offers however, the presence of important museums of great interest.
La Spezia is located in the heart of Lunigiana, historical geographical region with its own customs and traditions. The climate is mild and constant temperatures throughout the year. The main feature of the area are the terraces, a system devised by local farmers in order to make the most of the rugged hills of the Ligurian coast.
